Nope - forks on here were supposed to be black as in the old days.

They also match the rest of the bike build and also the shiney-polished black Cooks stem and cranks. You'll see better in the flesh.

Never used so many black parts before as I'm used to indulging in anodised colour but it makes the frameset stand out more I guess.

I'm sure i'm missing the point, but what's it like to ride?

I can't decide whether Trimble frames should be uber stiff or kinda flexy?

In my head i imagine the combination of disc drive/Trimple/CF saddle makes it hell to just sit and spin on a trail.

Its quite comfy actually - Not stiff at all. No flex from back end and cos of its boxy large tubed frame it feels like your riding some great big plastic kids toy.

Doesnt have the same feel as say the Fat Ti in terms of sheer nimbleness.

This build is by no means is light (blame it on the disk drive and porcs again) so it 'does' gather momentum ;)

Gravity is your (and my) friend :)

With all this plastic knocking about i imagine it has a fairly unique 'sound'.

Plastic kids toy sound.

Very nice. Lets see a pic against the famous brick wall, where so many famous steeds have stood.

Oh, and I want to see the Toad. Ever since you mentioned the project.
